So, that had rather been an experience and a half.
To say he is glad to be out of the manor and back into daylight would have been an understatement, in large part because at least the outside world has dangers that are rather easier to anticipate and predict. They also tend to be considerably simpler to manage, since most didn't rely so heavily on taking one's mind to play with it (At least, not in so literal a term. Of course, plenty people would still seek to play with others' mind with tricks and games, but at least they had to actually put effort into a good show than merely snap their fingers for a spell).
The knight walks alongside the fair lady, poise still dutiful, glaive still resting against the shoulder in proper alignment, even though the term 'fair' can be a little more loose than usual to his own appearance - the tabard has some brine stains, the armour still feeling grains of sand speckled among the links and his head still slightly ringing.. Just about the one thing their sea-themed escapade didn't result in is being soaked, and even that only because between the time it took to locate the manor exit and wind their way through town, the warm sunlight of the high summer had dried most things needing drying.
"It should not be much further, my lady," he says in that slow, northern drawn, indicating towards the end of the street where a plain, but welcoming looking wooden structure stands close to where the wharf begins, a sign dangling on the outside to denote the establishment as a tavern. "The food is plain, but good and the company peaceful and quiet in the dead of day. It should help you recover."
